Second Edition Cape Ann: A Photographic Portrait
Alan Murtagh Photographer
Sara Day Writer
You can feel it in the soft sands of Wingaersheek Beach, hear it in the thundering waves of the Back Shore, and smell it in the crispy, salty air that permeates the region. It's the heart of a place that beats with rustic beauty. It's the heart of Cape Ann.
Gloucester, Rockport, Essex, and Manchester-by-the-Sea are the brilliant gems that make the treasure of New England sparkle. From the historic fishing industry to the creative art colonies, Cape Ann is a place like no other. And with its traditional festivals, incredible seafood, overflowing antique shops, and scenic splendor, it's no wonder the area draws thousands of visitors each year.
Photographer Alan Murtagh has been capturing the beauty of this unique place for 15 years. His images evoke the spirit of Cape Ann in a way that stirs the viewer's imagination-you not only see it, you can actually sense it.
When you come to Cape Ann, you will discover it's not just a visit, it's an experience. And when you leave here, you never really leave, because Cape Ann is a place in the heart.
